Mommy shirt to little girl shirt

I was going through my closet and pulling out stuff to get rid of. There are several shirts in there that I honestly don't know how I ever wore them! This one was too short and tight for me. So I decided to make it into a shirt for my daughter.
Here is how it started out.

I cut the front and back apart and cut the sleeves off.

Then I figured out how big the neck opening needed to be and pinned the front and back together.
I used one of her shirts to decide how much to take in the sides and sewed it together, right sides together of course. 

Then I put the sleeves back on and hemmed the bottom.

I haven't been able to get a picture of her in it yet but will post that as soon as I can get her to hold still long enough. ;-)
